Wikis, TikiWikis, and WikiPads

We tronkies have a way with words, don't we?
I imagine that if the Eldar at Cuivienen were tronkies, we'd still be wibbling like NetTalk while it was being trained.

Anyhow, as I mentioned on 06 Nov 2003, my students have put up this Wiki (a web service-based online database) for GECKIES, the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation K-State Investigation and Experimentation Studio. It's a TikiWiki, i.e., it's implemented using the open-source groupware tool Tiki.

Now hfx_ben brings us word of the wikidPad:


wikidPad is a Wiki-like notebook for storing your thoughts, ideas, todo lists, contacts, or anything else you can think of to write down.

What makes wikidPad different from other notepad applications is the ease with which you can cross-link your information. Links in a wiki are created by typing in WikiWords. A WikiWord is any mixed case word typed into the editor. TodoList or JohnDoe are example WikiWords. The term wiki means "quick" in Hawaiian, and wikis are all about quickly linking your information together. Wikis are not a new concept, in fact there are many web based wiki servers available.

Glad to have been happunstacibly serendipopulous.

BTW, I was reading the C2 musings on capitalizaiton of wiki ... "Wiki", or "The Wiki" refers to Ward's, I think.
*Twiki-we, twiki-wu!*

Cuz's it's the wu-wei? ;-)

Yernow, I never heard of C2 (Cunningham and Cunningham), nor Ward Cunningham, afore I found that link.

It's the Wu Way to ZenCity (which is just past Existential City).

The BattleMaster wiki also renders poorly on Moz ... sad, that.
I've had precious little luck with k/t/wiki ... a whole lot more fun at C2 than any Zope I've (tried to) partake in, but C2 is wiki, not bl/k/t/w/iki.

By Moz, do you mean Thunderbird or Mozilla Classic?
I've stopped using Mozilla in lieu of Thunderbird and will prolly replace opera 7.x with it aswell.

On MacOS 10.x and WinXP, IE is still my primary browser (though the constant annoyance of losing 15-20 open IE windows when it crashes, compounded by the ridiculous Vanishing Status Bar, make it likely that I will switch if a better all-around browser becomes available).

BTW, I dknot know much of nazthing about the game BattleMaster, but its wiki has a frightening color scheme, is wot.

Would yew bereave I'd never heard of Zope afore this psot?

Zope [Z Object Publishing Environment] is an open source application server for building content managements, intranets, portals, and custom applications. The Zope community consists of hundreds of companies and thousands of developers all over the world, working on building the platform and Zope applications. Zope is written in Python, a highly-productive, object-oriented scripting language.

Wlel! Ya learn sumfink gnu every daz.

Download Safarii for OSX. And try Opera for WinXP.

The link to Tegrity Lecture on page=DistributedGP didn't work. And in the left sidebar I found "Articles", and "Talks", but no Lectures.
Signs and signified, yaa?

I shall traskalert the parties who maintain this Wiki.

For now, browse to
http://tegrity.online.ksu.edu/tegrity/default.asp
and my dir (bhsu) if you like.

GECKIES lectures are in "KDD".

Gee ... I'm thinking Hebb Cells again!
Thanks!
It's been a couple of weeks, maybe even a /few/ since I've showered in that sparkling array of associations.

This evening my neuron-snappingly vivid view had me seeing interaction in a set of servos ... cybernetics, yes?
A servo, having lost sync, will hunt. Ok, so how'd'it learn "that"?! huh huh
"That" is ambiguous; 1) how did the servo learn to go into that specific mode, and 2) how did it learn the hunting it does once in that state?

Say, you might be interested in the Artificial Neural Networks and Computational Brain Theory (ANNCBT) (ankh-sep-hut) group I helped found in 1996 at UIUC-DCS:

I recognize Manuela Velosa's lovely photograph ... was she doing VRML kinematics, maybe at Guelph? something related?
I seem to remember going from her pages to some of her co-authors ... months back, now.
HeyHo.

(Earlier this evening I was talking 3D mapping of BattleMaster performance [Gold/Prestige|Honour/CombatStrength], and only slightly later doing mulivariate stuff on that "Political Field" survey.
I'm big on the stimulation effect of visualization ... paradigmatically catalytic, no? FWIW the tai-chi is likely fractal by nature.)

Goond question.
I've known Manuela only since 2001, mainly acos I was in the AAAI-1997 Doctoral Consortium with Peter Stone and a dozen other students. Peter was then one of her Ph.D. students at Carnegie Mellon.

What I know of Manuela's work deals primarily with machine learning in autonomous robotics, especially robotic soccer (RoboCup) and other multi-agent systems (MAS) test beds. A glance at her home page reminds me that she was also involved with PRODIGY and CBR.

BTW, it's lawaz unnerging (hrm, gnu Tyope - must mean "disquietingly like a Fred Nerg question") to have people mention how your friends' advisors look lovely. Kinda like when your hear that one of your friends' moms is hot, I guess. :-P

You might be interested in the multifractal properties of joint probability distributions chapter of Haipeng Guo's dissertation (he's my former Ph.D. student).

... UofGuelph, methinks it was ... working group on kinematics ... it's the soccer connection that makes my meandering somewhat less implausible.
(Whaa?! You managed to not notice she was hot? I'm impressed by your ability to focus! *grin*)

"multifractal properties of joint probability distributions"
Muhhhh-numey! With whipped cream and uhhh cinammen-caramel on top? Yes puh-leze, and thank you twicely!
And thanks for the links. (google +multifractal +probabilities delivered 2,300 hits)
Perhaps this text version of a PS paper is a useful introduction?

BWT, judging by the quotes on Guo's homepage, you instilled in him a good work ethic! (A favorite of mine is from Hemingway, something to the effect that it's easy to mistake movement for action. *grin*)
